is it too dry in my terrarium?
    #1749164 - 07/25/03 08:21 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

O.K. Birthed wednesday night. The terrarium is filled with an inch and a half of perllite and pretty much that much water too. I've been spraying the shit out of the sides of the tank " about 4 times a day". So, I didnit mean to put so much water in there and the jar lids with the cakes on them were becoming submerged. The water was touching the cakes so I put them on tin foil. As I was doing so I touched one of the cakes, they didnt feel moist or wet. The problem is my digital RH gauge only reads 89 then HI. So its at the very least 90 percent in there. I dunno, im just worried, should they feel wet or moist to the touch? O GOOODDDD I just want them to pin so fuking bad!....aaahhhhhhhhhhhhh...... Its driving me fuking nuts! Thak you :lol: :devil: :evil: :nut: :lol: :devil: :nut:

your a newbie arent you??

u dont need to get the perlite that wet.... you have supersaturated the perlite making it actually worse... heres what i do... just take the perlite and put it in a garbage bag... soak it all with water and then poke a hole at the bottom to drain it all out... now i have saturated perlite that has air to breath thus making humitity... then i spray a *little* of water and h202 to decontaminate.... you will have a good RH if u do that...


and pinning will not happen in 2 days dude... give it time...

Water build-up at the bottom of your inclosure makes for good bacteria growth so make sure to take all that crap water out. as for the cakes feeling dry to the touch, thats normal. The cakes themselves feel pretty dry since the shrooms get most of there water intake from the air (Rh) plus its only been 2 days thats usual. good luck!

Whats up MOE. Take out a half inch of water and if you have drops forming on the sides of your chamber your fine.

I use a bubble wall(air stone) in my perlight for air exchange and humidity so I use water&h2o2 in the perlite and I keep the humidity at "HI" so i'm guessing it's around 100% and I never fan because them air pump in a filtered box pumps in clean air and the old air and co2 escapes out the cracks where the lid is.So if you are using this Tek (poor boy/man pod) you don't have to worry about shit pretty much.

but for what you were asking about.Yeah like what they said hahaha

just use a strainer. with a bowl underneath don't want to get you sink clogged up. when the water runs out the bottom your good.and you can test it with your hand if a shit load of perlite stick to your hand then its alright but if just one or two pieces you may need to cchange it out. don't over water it and give the mf some time quit looking at them.

I removed some water by placing a glass horizontaly "tilted back a little" in the perlite. This collected water and I removed quite a bit. But this collected a bit of perllite also. So I sat the cakes out and sprinkled just a tiny layer of perllite in so that the perllite would rise above the water level. I might have screwed the pooch but it actully looks alot better in there now, not like a swamp. Its sterille as hell in that room and I always wash my hands with antibac soap and wear a 3m breathing mask. So unless the untreadted perllite fuks it up ill probably be alright, RIGHT?

You'll be fine. My friends terrarium is in the dirtiest part of his house. It seems to me at least that once a cake is fully colonized and going well it is pretty tough as far as contams go.

they need to check for mushrooms only(shroom only drug test) for you to get busted.A normal drug test don't look for mushrooms it looks for THC,coke ect..

:rolleyes: :thumbup: :nut: :crazy2:

nice pay rise! if you're at all doubtful about your drug test, there are plenty ways to beat the system. most don't work, though. if i were you, i'd get a vegetarian virgin nun to wee in a pot for you, then keep it warm in your pocket. :cool:
